- Yesterday, a shocking Refereeing decision late in the game between Plateau United v Kano Pillars
- The entire crowd was shocked by the Referee who failed to give a clear penalty. There was a little bit of tension after the game
Back-Pass was reliably informed that the Referee who handled the Pre-match meeting was not the center Referee of the game. There was a mild drama in Lafia.
A lapse in the appointments of Referees found that the Center Referee who handled the Pre-match meeting was involved in the Kano Pillars V El-Kanemi game. According to a senior source he was asked not to head for the game when the appointment committee observed the error. The proper Referee as adjusted is now at the center of this controversy.
Meanwhile, Back-Pass was reliably informed by a source that the Assistant Referee AR1 did not sleep in the designated room allotted to him.
An eye-witness stated that Coach Abdul Maikaba was disgusted and said he would not grant any interview so he does not get sanctioned for what he says with regards to the referee.
The body language of Kano Pillars bench showed they also were relieved the Referee did not give the clear penalty.
The video is trending on Twitter with several arguments. For Back Pass the trailing leg of the Plateau United striker was clipped by the knee of the goal keeper and should have been a penalty.
We await to see how this pans out.
